SLIS is pleased to invite MLIS students from ALA-accredited master’s
programs to apply for enrollment in our Summer 2016 travel course in Seoul,
South Korea. The program includes two weeks of on-site instruction in Seoul
from August 2 to 11, 2016, with four weeks of online instruction prior to
departure. This course is offered as part of a partnership with Yonsei
University’s Department of Library and Information Science.

*Principles of Management (LIS 404)* will be taught by Professor Lisa
Hussey to both SLIS and Yonsei students. This class aims to fully immerse
LIS students in the Korean experience. Students will share accommodations
in Yonsei’s Muak Dormitory, located conveniently on campus in the Sinchon
neighborhood with easy access to the greater Seoul area.

Professor Hussey returns to Yonsei for the third time. She is thrilled to
share one of her favorite cities in the world with a new group of students.
LIS 404, traditionally offered at Simmons, will be tailored to include
examine both American and South Korean approaches and methodologies to the
practice of management in LIS. Site visits will include trips to important
LIS institutions like the Korean National Library, Yonsei University
Samsung Library, and the Korean Film Archive. Planned optional
extracurricular excursions include Gyeongbok Palace, the Demilitarized Zone
at the border of North Korea, and, in Professor Hussey’s words, “at least
one” baseball game at Jamsil Baseball Stadium. Students will be offered a
number of activities, while having the freedom to explore this amazing
country on their own.

Hussey, please reference parts 3 and 4 of this 2013 playlist
